4 College Freshman

Majors: I am not finished yet. But if I was I would be looking for a job either in my field or close to the field of study I graduated from.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife at ORU is very restricted. They believe that you should get a good night sleep. There is a curfew time to be in dorms. No smoking, no drinking, no drugs, and no wild parties; more of a community thing among all the on campus students. Accountability among one another is part of being there. There are chaplains and counselors around when you need them. Some of them live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: In Fireside there is a huge dining hall and there are several place to get a variety of foods. I love the food there. Get the max on your school card. In the administration building there are several restaurants and your school card covers everything. Variety is a big thing, but so is taking care of your body. So I do know that there are restaurants that sell stuff not too healthy for you, but for the most part you do eat good there.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: ORU is very diverse. I would suggest you read the school catalog first before you make that decision. Also praying about your decision to attend ORU is the best way to find out what you and God together need to do. They are a Bible based campus and you do not have to be a Christian to attend, but following the rules is part of an honor code you sign when you attend the school. Richard Roberts was not a Christian when he first attended the campus, but he did become a Christian when attending the school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe that if you follow the rules you will be alright. It is very beautiful and very safe, but you should always be wise and lock your car door. Always park in the right place. There are places designated for specific people.

3 College Freshman

Parking: You do have to walk to whatever building you have to be at, but the parking is not as bad as it seems. You go to park where you are suppose to. If you do not know, ask the staff who know. Complaints do not solve a problem. Do the best you can do because it is limited.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love being a part of the education program at ORU!! The course load is packed, but that's a good thing. I'm only a freshman and I've already started practicums. (That's where you go into a shool for a few hours a week to observe and assisst.) The professors always have their doors open and are super halpful. This is especially important in the ed. department because getting certified to teach is a long and complicated process but they know exactly what needs to be done and when and they make sure us students are on top of things. Also, the ed. tech lab, open only to education majors, is one of the only places on campus that has free printing which is a huge plus.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: All ORU students are required to sign a honor code at the beginning of each year. Drugs are one of the prohibited items on the honor code and it is strictly enforced. This makes ORU an awesome enviroment not only to learn but also to make lasting relationships.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Many people compain about the cafeteria food but I think it's pretty good and their are always a lot of options. Other dining options include chik-fil-a, Moe's (taco place), Green Cuisine (health food/smoothies), a deli, and two coffee shops. Sometimes, food outside of the cafeteria can get expensive but you can also buy food in the grocery store and keep it in the refridgerator that every dorm room is provided with.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants in Tulsa, many of which are walking distance from the school. You can find many places to eat to satisfy your craving, there is everything from Indian and Thai food to Mexican and Italian food.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: They provide shuttles to the airport, many different churches and local outreaches.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Hardly anyone drinks or "parties". Of course, there is a small group that does but its not prevalent at all.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The new Armand Hammer Student Center is definitely the best building on campus. It has added a lot of life to the ORU campus; it has a restaurant and a coffee spot. It also has meeting rooms, and the biggest flat screen TV in Oklahoma. Not a bad place to hangout, play video games, or even a game of pool.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The new student center is the best hangout spot for students; the Aerobic Center is great for workouts and competitive games of basketball, badminton, or even volleyball.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: ORU is a relatively small campus therefore all transportation on campus be accomplished on foot. However a car is a must for experiencing the city of Tulsa. There is not much in the way of public transportation except for calling a taxi.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities available for personal student use are kept in the best shape and have many different aerobic exercises and sports equipment. There is also an incredible amount of student spirit when it comes to cheering for our teams whether they are varsity or intramural.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with the program I have chosen at ORU. Even if I could choose to redo my education I would stay at ORU. My career goals are to become and ER surgeon and take my expertise to less fortunate individuals in other countries. I do not have a concerns for my career after ORU.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Admitting to ORU as a premedical student is extremely easy. The most important criteria for admissions would be grade and standardized testing scores. There are no abnormal application processes, but when it comes to selecting your classes for upcoming semesters there a few classes that are required for premed students.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am a premedical biology major. I am not currently in an internship but would eventually like to be in one. The most desired internship for me would be a paid internship in a hospital. I would most likely be consigned to administrative duties but that would still be a good experience for me, as I would still gain an understanding of what happens within a hospital.

5 College Freshman

Academics: My major is Ministry and Leadership with a concentration in Missions. It a great school because it was founded by a famous christian Evangelist name Oral Roberts. He was greatly use over seas and in america by God to bring his healing Gospel to the world.The focus of the theology school is to raise up Spirit-Empowered servant leaders to hear God's voice and make known his healing power to every man.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Oral Robert University is such a warm and inviting place where students pursue a spirit,mind,and body education. On our campus is a tower which has rooms dedicated both on the lower and top part for prayer and devotion.This tower is where student can pray, worship and praise individually alone or with other student with live bands. We also have a newly built student center with a gaming center, pool table, campus resturant and coffee shop. One the great feature apart from it modern design is it huge T.V. which is the largest in the state.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Has not snowed this winter yet!!! but there is very cold weather (in comparison to Texas)

3 College Freshman

Administration: Policies are enforced and there are many rules but people are nice about it. If you follow the rules it's no big deal

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Love the mission of the school! But I feel there is a little more hype than necessary

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: I liked it because it was warmer than Michigan. Not a lot of snow at the time which I liked. I like the hot. They do have thunderstorms and tornados but I did not really effect us. Black Ice was different for me. However, I liked variety of climates that they had. It was intriguing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Nearly everyone at ORU said that if they had to make their college decision all over again, they would still choose this university. Students give high marks to the strong Christian community here, and say that the professors and students are approachable, kind, and helpful. Another positive is the size of the school—it’s easy enough to get personal attention from the teachers, but the school is still large enough that you’ll regularly be able to meet lots of new, unique people.

Overall, Oral Roberts University is a great place for anyone who has a strong desire to become spiritually awake, intellectually alert, physically disciplined, professionally competent, and socially adept!
